Slowly but Surely...
I'm finally getting back to the needles. On Monday night, I picked up the baby sweater that I'd started on the way to the cottage -- just the sleeves and the button bands to go:
Actually, I'm closer to being finished than the picture suggests. I took the picture before I picked it up again last night. Now I'm almost finished with Sleeve #1. I have to tell you -- it feels wonderful to knit again. I missed it. And this is a good project to work on -- it's just a bunch of knitting, with the occasional decreases. I can handle that.
This, however, has been put on hold:
I'm just a few repeats into my new lace stole, and it's *killing me* not to work on it. But I'm still in no shape to knit lace. So I just stare at it a lot. I'm not exactly liking the way it's striping on me, but it may just grow on me. I love the way the lace pattern is knitting up, though. It's so simple that it works with the crazy striping yarn.
So I got an email yesterday from the Uber Yarn Outlet, and that reminded me that the tent sale is just around the corner. If you're interested in road-tripping it, let me know, so we can pick our days to go.
